This was a shot taken quite sometime ago, This is the first time I saw these crabs, possibly mating.

Yes Richard, that's a pair of swimming crabs probably mating! I've got a fact sheet on these crabs on wildsingapore
http://www.wildsingapore.com/wildfacts/ ... unidae.htm
With lots of fact sheets and photos of our other common marine life too.
Singapore's shores are very much alive!

All the best,
Ria.

Thank you for looking and the clarification of the activity of these crabs, Ria. I'm not familiar with these aquatic creatures.
